We visited this restaurant on a Saturday night with some friends, after someone recommended it to me. The restaurant has just been refurbished and the decor and ambience were both very inviting.

We were told about how good the food was at this pub so we gave it a try..... as with other people who have commented... the steaks were fantastic as was everything else, even down to our dog feeling like a king. We will be back soon.

You arrive and enter like you have come home! into a fresh but cosy, clean, quirky sitting room. It is a small intimate country pub with welcome. Locals happily sitting in the bar area with their pints and dogs, the publicans with their two delightful spaniels (and 2 gorgeous cats who were brought down so we could have a stroke... More
